Italian term or phrase: nasello
"Un modello è caratterizzato da tagli della tomaia e del nasello". Penso si tratti di quella parte attraverso cui passa il cinturino, per non farlo muovere.
E' accettabile come traduzione il termine "loop"?

I think your suggestion sounds OK- not sure

"loop strap" seems to be a commonly used term, so think "loop" might be ok

Unless it is refering to the "buckle"......really don't know

disagree  Lise Leavitt: Loop should be passante in Italian?!! It is a term for shoes not belts. =)

Notes to answerer
Asker: Cara Moranna, anche io avevo pensato che fosse un sinonimo di "linguetta" ma poi ho trovato il seguente riferimento: "CHARLESTON scarpa usata dai ballerini, con un NASELLO in cui passa un cinturino che sale sul collo del piede, per mantenere l’ancoraggio" E in inglese: "Sole loop to keep instep strap in place".
